Flexibility of the programme

… lets you choose how many learning modules you want to study each semester. You are also welcome to interrupt your studies should professional and/or private duties prevail. Most students study five semesters in part time to complete their IMM studies.

… is mainly based on distance learning which means most modules are completed by handing in home assignments. The course also includes 1-3 on-campus phases which take place in Elsfleth, Germany. When you start your studies, these attendance phases serve for familiarisation and networking purposes. Later, you will complete three learning modules on campus: one written examination, a business simulation and a presentation including a conference-type discussion. Attendance phases are offered twice each year.

… follows a learner-centred approach which means that you acquire theoretical knowledge by means of course books. These didactically prepared texts enable you to combine existing professional knowledge with new academic knowledge. For this purpose, real-life projects and cases arising from your own professional contexts are processed and solved – theoretical and practical issues go ‘hand-in-hand’. During the learning process you will apply new methods and exchange ideas with your peers by means of student forums. Guidance/support is provided by us – your lecturers
